Good Citizens

Thursday, May 14, 2015  Today May 14, 2015 the Milmont Fire Co. hosted Grace Park Elementary"s Kindergarten classes for the second year. They are learning what Good Citizens do and came to the firehouse to meet the men and women that volunteer to serve the community. We had an AM and a PM tour. The boys and girls met Captain Richard Sullivan, Lisa Parks, Lexi Sullivan and Betsy Sullivan. Captain Sullivan showed the boys and girls the fire trucks and the Ambulance.

Milmont Fire Company was honored to have the Kindergarten class come to our firehouse. They all had many questions and Captain Sullivan was glad to answer each one of them. We would like to thank the teachers for bringing the kids today Dan Arrison and paraprofessional Kathy Austin, Katie In Kopay and Kendall Howanski.
